Open House Nov. 16 for S.F. State's new program
in Jewish Community Studies; scholarships available

SAN FRANCISCO, November 10, 1999 --- The Bay Area community is invited to learn about San Francisco State University's new graduate certificate program in Jewish Community Studies during an open house on Nov. 16 beginning at 10:30 a.m. in Jewish Studies Office in the Humanities Building, Room 416 on the S.F. State campus, 1600 Holloway Ave.

Visitors will begin the day by meeting with faculty and students in Jewish Studies in the program's office, Humanities Bldg., Room 416. Then they will be able to attend a Jewish Studies class, Introduction to Jewish Studies, at 11 a.m. in the Humanities Building, Room 383. After class, a lunch with Jewish Studies faculty and staff will be held in the University Club on the campus.

Then visitors will have a chance to explore career and study options in Jewish Studies. One session will be held at 1:30 p.m. and another at 7 p.m.

Visitors are welcome to attend other Jewish Studies classes that day: The Jewish Historical Experience at 2:10 p.m., Humanities Building, Room 277 or 20th Century American Jewish Women Writers, Humanities Building, Room 129, at 2:10 p.m.; and the American Jewish Family and Identity at 4:10 p.m., Humanities Building, Room 129.

The new Jewish Community Studies Program is designed for students who want to pursue careers in the community services field working with community and social service organizations or agencies. Students must already hold a bachelor's degree.

To help provide financial assistance to students, the Jewish Studies Program has just announced that it will award five $500 scholarships to students entering the graduate certificate program, thanks to a grant from the Walter and Elise Haas Fund.

For more information about the open house or the Jewish Community Studies Program, call Deborah Gerson, coordinator of the program, at (415) 338-3150.
